Travelling around Benin, you will pass many villages and houses with a flagpole and a white flag flying, or a black and red striped flag and may wonder what this means.
When you see a white flag flying it is a sign that the village or the family of the house follow the traditional voodoo religion. The voodoo temples also have the white flag outside.
The black and red flag indicates the temple is that of Zangbeto who is the night watchman and is one of the most powerful and popular of the spirits.
